-   OUR PEOPLE  -

The Omodei family first arrived in Pemberton in 1925 from the mountains of northern Italy and have farmed the land of Eastbrook for generations, with the fifth generation growing rapidly to continue the tale! Initially they farmed dairy and beef cattle but moved on to growing potatoes and other vegetable crops. The family of farmers has now diversified and grows wine grapes, apples, avocados, truffles and blueberries.
